Another one bites the dust

Not as big of a PR move as killing UBL, but as far as the war on terror and mitigating threats to the US, this is at least as significant. This guy's group was responsible for the butt bomber on Christmas, the printer bombs that were intercepted last Halloween, and God knows how many other ongoing plots. USA! USA! USA!

Islamist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki 'killed in Yemen'
The US-born radical Islamist cleric and suspected al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen, the country's defence ministry has said.

A statement said only that he died "along with some of his companions".

Mr Awlaki, who is of Yemeni descent, has been on the run in Yemen since December 2007.

The US has named him a "specially designated global terrorist" for his alleged role in a number of attacks and he is said to be on a CIA hit list.

He is described by US officials as leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

He has been implicated in the US army base killings in Fort Hood, Texas, the Christmas 2009 Detroit airline bomb attempt, and a failed bombing in New York's Times Square.

When he was imam of a San Diego mosque in the 1990s, his sermons were attended by two future 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi.

In a video posted in November last year he called for the killing of Americans, saying they were from the "party of devils".

It's amazing that we can a country half the world away to kill (allegedly) a guy a lot them probably agree with. But we can't Mexico to do a goddamn thing about the sadistic violence on the boarder.

I think we need to go 'Machete' down on the border. Let's set up our own drug cartel with big kickbacks to our politicians and see if those drones aren't brought into use and if money isn't thrown at the problem.

Plus Michelle Rodriguez is hotter than shit.

Machete was a terrible movie and i'm on the fence as to Michele Rodriguez's "hotness".

Go fuck yourself.

The movie was horrible, I agree. Purposely so in intention, not purposely so in execution.

But she looked great in it. Far better than Jessica Alba.

I liked the naked chick in the beginning myself.

Sometimes when I hear Michele Rodriguez's voice, I picture Vasquez from Aliens.
